We had many, many pleasant experiences driving there from our villa Le Convertoie near Greve in Chianti. We loved strolling through every shop, eating desserts, drinking wine, adoring the extraordinary butcher shop.

Lively little piazza with two bars (cafes), a bakery with delicious goods, a fruit shop, a meat shop, a souvenir shop and more. A great place to watch the world go by

If you want the experience of a smaller Tuscan town away from the likes of Siena or San Gimignano, this is one of those towns. Not so small as that you will miss it, so significant enough to have a few fun things to do....More
